NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 21, 2022 -- Global leading tire company Hankook Tire will supply the original equipment for the 2022 INFINITI QX60 with its Dynapro HP2 tire in the size 255/50R20. The tires will be produced at Hankook Tire's Tennessee Plant in Clarksville, Tenn.

The all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60 was designed to make the daily commute easier for the driver. Seven seats standard make it a perfect choice for a family SUV. Additionally, with the 9-speed automatic transmission, the 2022 QX60 can accelerate more responsively and with taller upper gears to enable longer cruises at a lower rpm for a quieter ride, which is supported by Hankook tires.

Paired with the high-performance Dynapro HP2 tires, it offers better dry and wet handling.

"To serve the continually growing SUV segment, Hankook Tire is upgrading a lineup of tires with exceptional performance for SUVs," said Moonhwa Hong, Vice President of the OE Development Department at Hankook Tire.
